The attractive forms of a person’s physique are one of the best business cards. That’s why the beautiful proportions between the bust-waist-hips are a wish for everybody. For a long time, what we did to shape these forms was to have liposuction procedures in areas with excess fat. But the liposuction era is gone!
BBL or Brazilian Butt Lift essentially means highlighting the bulging shape of the buttocks by liposculpture of the surrounding areas and adding fat to the buttocks.
What is a Skinny BBL?
The Brazilian Butt Lift technique represents the beautiful conformation of the buttock region and the liposculpture remodeling of the surrounding areas. Thus, on the one hand, you get a butt with attractive shapes and on the other hand, you get rid of the fat in the areas where it exists in excess.
A Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift is the same as a regular, traditional BBL procedure. The difference consists of the body structure of the individual, as a skinny BBL procedure is performed on a skinny body. In this case, the procedure will need less fat transfer, but at the same time, it implies removing excess fat from more than one area of the body to enhance the buttock and hip area.
The purpose of a Skinny BBL is to enhance the shape, not adding too much volume to the buttock, offering a more subtle and natural look.
There are cases when the patient has no body fat or not enough, and plastic surgeons may recommend buttock implants.
How Much Does A Skinny BBL Cost?
The cost of a Skinny BBL procedure can go from $4,000 to $20,000 and more, depending on how many areas need to get liposculpture to gather all the needed fat for the buttocks. Most of the time, a Skinny BBL procedure also implies body resculpt, both of the abdomen and waist. Depending on the complexity of the procedure and the surgeon’s fee, the average cost of a Skinny BBL in many states can go around $6,500, but also from $11,000 to $18,000.
In Beverly Hills, the cost for Skinny BBL starts around $8,000, but depending on some factors like what fees it includes and individual specifics of each case, the final cost can be anywhere around $1,000 to $15,000, or even up to $20,000, or more.

Factors that may affect the cost of a Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift

Does insurance cover the cost of Skinny BBL?
Skinny BBL surgery is a cosmetic procedure and, in most cases, it is not covered by any type of insurance. However, there are medical issues where, for example, the excess skin causes infection and needs BBL surgery, in which case the procedure may be covered by insurance if you have medical documents and a medic’s recommendation. To find out the type of coverage and its associated costs the best way is to contact your insurance provider.
Paying for cosmetic procedures out of pocket can be quite expensive. That’s why most clinics offer, at least, the option for you to make monthly payments for a fixed period of time.
Additional costs related to the skinny BBL procedure
People recover differently, and you might need to spend some money on it.
Before any type of cosmetic surgery, you’ll need to perform some medical and blood tests, which in most cases are not included in the overall cost.
It is always best to ask what is included in the cost of a Skinny BBL procedure, as there are cases when plastic surgeons do not include the anesthesiologist’s fee or facility fees.
Minimum post-surgery prescription medication should be followed for 7 days, which in some cases you will have to pay for.
Bandages and garments will be removed after 7 days, and the corset for the sculpted abdominal area should be worn for at least 1 month. Some clinics cover this cost in the final price, while some don’t.
Postoperative massages may not end at the 10th meeting with the lymphatic massage therapist, and they cost $100 per session on average.
There are patients who may want to combine this procedure with other surgeries, so they may get a discount from the doctor.
The Skinny BBL procedure is not easy or cheap, so try to have the best possible aftercare.
Good candidates For a Skinny BBL
Anyone can benefit from Brazilian butt lift surgery! But Skinny BBL is recommended for very thin people with minimal subcutaneous fat.
The patient can also choose to conform the abdomen as a sports abdomen, the great advantage given by the new liposculpture techniques. The body can look athletic with a bulging butt even if the person is not doing sports on a regular basis, although we recommend everyone to do as much exercise as possible!
The great advantage of Skinny BBL compared to prosthetic butt augmentation is that the fat used for buttocks augmentation and lifting is your own tissue and therefore there are no risks related to the presence of any foreign body as it can exist if augmentation is used for buttocks with silicone prosthesis.
Skinny BBL is a procedure that involves 2 treatments in one:
- Liposculpture of the whole body on one side;
- Creating a natural-looking body in case the patient has flat buttocks.
For exceptional aesthetic results, the procedure can be combined with other types of interventions such as Abdominoplasty – when there is an excess of skin on the belly, breast enlargement or lifting with or without prosthesis, rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, etc.
This procedure does not require any incision to be performed so there will be no post-operative signs. The possible risks of this procedure are strictly limited to the risks of any surgical procedure if it is not performed by an accredited and experienced specialist. You will definitely reduce the risks if you search for a qualified and experienced aesthetic surgeon.
That is why we recommend consulting with a proper plastic surgeon to provide you with all the information and answers.
